ASSOCIATION of Merchants of Orihuela (ACMO), in collaboration with the City Council has organised an ‘Outlet Fair’ from Friday 10th November until Sunday.
Hosted along the Glorieta Gabriel Miró, 17 shops and establishments based in Orihuela will take their goods and services out onto the street and among the people over this weekend, and promising to bring some ‘very interesting prices’ at the same time.
Commerce Councillor Miguel Ángel Fernández announced that the stalls will include, among others, footwear, clothing, lingerie, children’s fashions and home decor. “The shop owners almost demand us to continue holding this fair every year that has been held since 2014”, he said.
Additionally, this year’s Outlet Fair will coincide with the Gin and Tonic Tapas Route held over the same weekend in Orihuela, and as such the organisers hope that more members of the public will flock into the municipality.
The President of ACMO, Trinitario Belmar, was pleased to note that the number of businesses taking part this year has increased from the 15 last year to 17. He also said that there would be some significant discounts available that may exceed 50 per cent in some cases.
The Outlet Fair will be open from 10am to 2pm and again from 5pm until closing, and apart from the stalls will also have workshops to keep the children amused and occupied as well as a visit from some of their favourite animated characters.
